Remarkably relevant, beautifully written, and filled with wit and wisdom, these 3 essays by Bertrand Russell allow the listener to test the concepts of The Good Life, Morality, The Existence of God, Christianity, and Human Nature. "What I Believe" was used prominently in the 1940 New York court proceedings in which Russell was judicially declared "unfit" to teach philosophy at City College of New York. "Why I Am Not a Christian" concludes that churches throughout history have retarded progress and states that we should instead "look to our own efforts here below to make this world a fit place to live in." Finally, "A Free Man's Worship," perhaps the most famous single essay written by Russell, considers whether humans operate from free will.
